Græsk: Grundstof med atomnummer 53 i det periodiske system.
Detonationen af atomvåben, atomvåbenuheld og uheld på atom-kraftværker frigiver bl.a. jod-129 i miljøet. Atmosfæriske atomvåbenforsøg i den første del af den kolde krig har frigivet radioaktivt jod i atmosfæren, som har bredt sig som radioaktivt nedfald rundt om i verden, og er nu fundet i miljøet. Størstedelen af I-129 i miljøet kommer fra atomvåbenforsøg.

Discovery of palladium, antimony, tellurium, iodine, and xenon isotopes. / : J. Kathawa, C. Fry, M. Thoennessen. National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory and Department of Physics and Astronomy, Michigan State University, 2012.
Currently, thirty-eight palladium, thirty-eight antimony, thirty-nine tellurium, thirty-eight iodine, and forty xenon isotopes have been observed and the discovery of these isotopes is discussed here. For each isotope a brief synopsis of the first refereed publication, including the production and identification method, is presented.

BACKGROUND: A study was begun in 1965 to 1966 to determine whether children exposed to radioactive iodine from nuclear weapons testing at the Nevada Test Site from 1951 through 1962 were at higher risk of thyroid disease. In 1993, we reported that among those examined in 1985 to 1986 (Phase II) there was an association between radiation from the Nevada Test Site and thyroid neoplasms.'
